Pretexts for an Attack on Iran

By Ray McGovern, May 15, 2019

Why does no one point to the reality that Israel*** plays THE central role in ANY U.S. policy making toward Iran and the whole region.  Bolton and Pompeo may seem to have wandered a bit off the Trump reservation; but they want war, and so does Netanyahu.

SO fat and skinny will win this race if Trump — like virtually all his predecessors — feels cornered by the Bibis and Adelsons of this world, the more so as a U.S. presidential election approaches.

What are in play are the “passionate attachments” and “entangling alliances” about which George Washington pointedly warned in his Farewell Address. Making more likely another unconscionable war.

*** Oh, I guess we know why.
